    This machine may save my life

    I'm a former marathon runner who now has severe arthritic pain in both knees. Even walking long distances hurts. I transitioned to an elliptical machine, which was better, but still leaves me with some pain as there is still some weight bearing. I'd stopped exercising for the last few years, and have watched my weight balloon and my health start to decline. I'm so out of shape that housework and even climbing a flight of stair leaves me out of breath. I'm about 5'10" and a depressing 280 pounds of flab. So I'm basically starting from zero. I've talked to my doctor and orthopedist - both of which suggested swimming as an aerobic activity which won't stress my knees. No pool close to me so not an option. I found this machine by accident and was convinced by all the stellar reviews to try this. So here are my first impressions.Amazon had this delivered in two days via UPS.

    Concept2 Model D has advantages over BodyCraft VR500

    After much research I bought the Concept2 Model D rower. Now I am very glad I did.I was comparing the following machines* Concept2 Model D ($900)* Concept2's Model E ($1100) which is higher off the groundand probably Concept2's strongest competitor on quality (but not price)...* BodyCraft VR500 (listed for $1900, usually on sale for $1500-1600)Also high off the ground like the Model E, and with a long monorail (both Concept2 models D and E also have an available longer monorail, for people with inseams of 38 inches/96.5cm or longer)I tested the Concept2 at my local YMCA before buying it (Concept2's website shows a listing of YMCA's with a Concept2 in your zip code). I also tested the BodyCraft VR500 at my local 2nd Wind Exercise Equipment store.I purchased the Polar H7 heart-rate monitor to work with the Concept2 , and the RowPro Software for the Concept2 after trialing it for 3 weekends... 5/5 Mark (Minneapolis, MN) - See all my reviews This review is from: Concept2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine with PM5 (Sports) After much research I bought the Concept2 Model D rower.

    Amazing.

    I resisted all the black Friday deals on rowers and bought this one based on the positive reviews. I'm glad I did. Amazon shipped it to me in 2 days. Comes in a large box that weighs about 60 lbs. Very well packaged. Puts together with just 8 bolts. All the tools are included. Took 5 minutes.Despite the positive reviews, this item exceeded my expectations. The machine is extraordinarily solid. No wiggles or give what so ever. Just unbelievable for a 55 lb machine. The rowing motion is great. Clutch uptake is without slack. The slide is smooth. There are complaints about the seat being too hard. I though that the seat was hard plastic, but it's very firm rubber. There is cushion, and I didn't have any problems at all. I bought a gel cushion, but don't find that I need it.I was a bit worried about noise since my machine is in a hard room. But there is not much noise. I'm able to hear the TV from across the room.Overall, this is one... 5/5 Baghdaddy - See all my reviews, December 4, 2014

    Great after small Mod

    4/5 Travis - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stamina Body Trac Glider 1050 Rowing Machine (Sports) Great machine for the price. I too had the problem with my shoes slipping out of the foot straps. The back rim isn't tall enough. However, for about $1 you can mod the peddles for a quick fix. I cut a 4" PVC end cap in half and bolted them to the peddles as shown in the attached photo. Works great and fits my big shoes., January 17, 2015

    Demo of Stamina Rower

    Customer Video Review Length:: 1:17 MinsSo far, so good. I was a little upset that there weren't any video reviews for this product, (youtube, from the company itself etc.) so I promised myself that I'd make a video demonstration for others to judge.The basic stuff you need to know: There are 12 levels of resistance (I was using resistance level 8).The computer tells you how many complete rows you have performed, time performed, calories burned or you can scan through all three (My computer didn't work when it first arrived, but after a solid punch it woke up and started working). The resistance is nice. You'll get a good workout with this inexpensive machine. Storage is convenient, but don't be fooled, 35 pounds is heavy to move around from room to room. Keep the machine close to where you plan on using it. Finally, the footstraps were a major complaint. My complaint about the footstraps is that it doesn't hold your feet securely against the footrests. The clicking noise you hear in... 5/5 Louie the Italian Jew - See all my reviews, September 25, 2010

    Simple, effective and reasonably robust but has a flaw

    I was pleasantly surprised and excited when this rowing machine first arrived. It was well packed and the frame, supports and track were of reasonable gauge steel. I tried it out and after 5 minutes of use I was hearing a click and feeling a notch each time I took a stroke. The click was coming from the area of the piston where a metal pin secures the piston to the handle. I removed the pin and saw that it was damaged. I did not see any damage when I first installed it. There were two grooves and some marks on the pin from where it was rubbing on the frame (metal on metal). The pin is made from soft metal and if it can be grooved after 5 minutes of use I can't imagine that it's going to last very long. Also, the Amazon product description includes "Adjustable foot straps." I did not receive any foot straps. It's possible that Amazon made a mistake and the machine does not come with foot straps because I don't see any in the product picture.It is disappointing to get a new... 3/5 Pughimag (Hampstead, NC United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    The greatest at any price!

    FedEx just delivered my Sunny Health and Fitness Rowing Machine which was shipped in an excellent outer box with absolutely no holes or rips in it! The rower is completely assembled except for the handle bars which bolted on quickly with the enclosed wrench and 2 big bolts. I installed the console which was a simple slide on affair with a simple wire plug in. I never use consoles but I installed it anyway....it came with batteries included! There were no straps to hold the feet on an NONE ARE NEEDED!The seat isn't the best in the world but solid and glides easily and smoothly. I might add a small cushion for longer sessions. The hydraulic piston adjusts easily and goes from real easy to real difficult. So far I am estatic about my rower, but time will tell if I remain so. Am 86 years old and after a few minutes on the 2nd setting, I can feel the muscles in my thighs complaining, which is proof positive that the rower is doing the job it is intended for... 5/5 Melvin H.

    I've had it for a year and still love it

    This little rower is a high quality, very effective piece of equipment with a minimalist footprint, and you can't say that about too many machines in the under $100 price range. The only cons are relatively minor: the seat wobbles a wee bit when in motion (high tech gadgetry that would prevent that would add significantly to the cost, I'm sure), the seat isn't the cushiest (you can probably buy a cover or jerry rig something), and it might not work well for tall people (I'm 5'6" have to lean back to get a full extension). Pros: It's light and can be easily moved by the average woman, it doesn't take up much floor space (fits neatly in my coat closet, too), the resistance is tiiiiiight, articulating pedals that allow for natural movement, the computer starts and stops automatically, smooth movement (aside from that little wobble--quickly forgotten once you get into a rhythm), and you pretty much get out of it what you put into it!I almost forgot: putting it together is... 5/5 Nancy - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: Sunny Health & Fitness Dual Function Rowing Machine by - SF-RW5612 Dual Function Rowing Machine, Gray (Sports) I recently purchase the S H & F Rowing Machine, and I am very satisfied with my purchase. I not only got a great value for my money, but the price was a steal for everything this rowing machine does. I am 62 years old, and I am able to row for about 45 minutes every day. I am working up to an hour. I have exercised all my life and this rowing machine gives me a great work-out. The machine itself is sturdy, smooth, and I haven't had any problems with it at all. I would recommend this product if you are looking for a rowing machine that will last a long time but will not cost a fortune, and you will still get the quality you are looking for.

    Not high end but not low end

    I'm writing this not having used the product to the best of its designed use yet. From what I have tried of it though, it feels like a decent machine. I can really feel it in my legs when using it. I was sold on it because it was a dual use machine where I could work out my arms as well. That part really isn't that bad. I wish the handle was a little longer though for arm curls. It's easy to put together with the instructions and detailed part bags an extreme help.If your looking for a fancy machine though, this isn't it. It's a dial the operator turns to increase or decrease the tension and the display is basic display. There are no programs to choose from, just the basic info the operator needs to see where they are headed. If your looking for a sheet that says what you can do with this machine, there is none. In the end it's just rowing and curls. One thing I don't like about the machine is this cable that hooks up to the LCD display.
